Steelers' Townsend charged with assault in bar fight
Townsend is charged with simple assault, accused of participating in a fight in the early hours of Friday at a Pittsburgh nightclub.
Police say it began when a man argued with practice squad member Raymond Burgess, who's also charged. But Burgess also says Townsend was in another part of the club.
However, police say Burgess and Townsend both hit the man, leaving him with a cut over his eye and a bloody lip.
